“Disappointed!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We were looking forward to some pub grub and cold beer. After a day of wine tasting and gourmet lunch.We found this place without any advice,the decor was tired and beat up . A full makeover required. Beer was cold but one pint glass had a chip in the lip. The two tables pushed together left a precarious placement for your drinks.At the time we arrived one young lady was running the whole show. So service was slow. Two in our party ordered liver and onions but no mash potatoe available.The two dinners arrived together one was over cooked the other under cooked , bloody in the middle,it was sent back, the other forced it down. My wife and I had fish and chips, the two meals were mediocre and the fish tasteless.We ate it , drank our beer and waited for the returned liver to arrive. It did and was edible. But embarassing for our lady friend to eat alone,while we all watched. In there defence they did not charge us for that meal. But the damage was done.The young lady ,over worked was polite and apologetic. But we will not return. But we will return to the area for the fine wineries. We will find another place to eat.

“Happy to find Coach's Pub”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We were in Picton for just one night in June 2012. We arrived late in the afternoon and it was hot. We were keen to find an outdoor patio for a cool drink. We were directed to Coach's and it was exactly what we were looking for.
The service was good. I agree that it is more of a "bar" atmosphere than a restaurant. I would most likely not take young children to Coach's.

“Nice Spot to Grab a Bite to Eat”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

This is a fine restaurant in PIcton, right on the main drag. The service is good and the food is also. It is part of a bar in the back which doesn't interest me but the street view is great for people watching.

“Okay for lunch”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Food is acceptable, but the atmosphere is too bar like to be called a real restaurant.

“Good food, poor decor”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

This place could use a makeover, but the food was ok. If you don't have time to make a reservation then Coach's will most likely have lots of room to accept you and your party! The food is not bad at all.
